Note 3 4.4 battery drain

So I feel like after the update my phones battery drains quicker. Does anyone else feel that as well?

Yes I've noticed it too. Before I could go all day without charging. Now I feel I can't leave the house without a spare charger.  Hating kitkat right now!

I also have it as well, but the problem is that AT&T and Samsung might not release a 4.4.3 update to fix it anytime soon. I need to call Samsung as well. I know the Nexus 5 has the same issue. It's something to do with the media server and trying to open the camera.

 Just an update I called samsung and all they told me is that it was normal... All updates do this, and to monitor my usage on my phone.

I guess another waiting game until they realize

something to do with the update and camera use because if i use my camera once the battery drains in about 30 precent of time as not using it and using other things
